Bobby Lashley’s second run in WWE is reaching a crescendo as he faces The Miz during tonight’s edition of RAW for the WWE Title. This will be a landmark victory for the CEO of the Hurt Business if he can pull down the big win. Lashley believes that he has earned it as well.
While speaking to Bleacher Report, Bobby Lashley expressed the belief that he has earned a WWE Title run. He paid his dues, even leaving WWE for a while, and now Lashley believes that his time has come to be the face of the company.
“Ultimately, with the support, I think a lot of people know that I have paid my dues, and when you talk about a WWE champion and everything you put in there, I think I check all the boxes,” Lashley said with confidence. “Can you send this guy around the world and have him represent your company in a very professional manner? If you watch Raw, we come in looking clean. The suits I throw together and the way that I walk—we’re trying to steal the show without even wrestling.”
“Even what I bring to the table: a military background, I graduated college with honors, single father doing my thing and still being able to train and fight. Every aspect of a champion. I check every one of those boxes, and I think everyone understands that. Even though I walk around and do bad things, people know I’m the man, and I have the opportunity to do some big things in this company.”
JBL recently spoke about Bobby Lashley and he said that WWE should build the company around him. He is a full-time Superstar with an incredible look and the ability to entertain. It’s unknown what kept Vince McMahon so long to finally position Lashley for a push, but he’s been protected by the Hurt Business for the past few months, further boosting his stock.
